Los Angeles based metalcore band Vampires Everywhere! have announced the departure of their bassist Phillip Kross and his temporary replacement Adam Vex. Vampires Everywhere!’s frontman Michael Vampire had the following to say:
“It is with great sadness that I have to announce Philip Kross’s [bass] departure from Vampires Everywhere! Philip did an amazing job contributing to VE! the past year and we will never forget the sacrifices he made for the band. We respect Philip greatly and will keep him on all press- and album-related artwork he already completed with the band, including our upcoming release. Philip decided to pursue other musical-related activities and we wish him the best of luck with whatever he decides to do. However, Philip will not be on the VE! lineup for the Vans Warped Tour this summer. Filling in on bass will be Adam Vex. He is known for his work in Suffer Well, Aesthetic Perfection, and Imperative Reaction. We are beyond excited to have Vex filling in and we are positive he will bring an amazing stage show to the Warped Tour this summer. We love all of our fans soo much and we are excited to release ‘Hellbound & Heartless’ June 19, 2012.”
Vampires Everywhere! are set to release their new album Hellbound & Heartless on June 19th via Hollywood Waste Records.
